Sporting legends play darts!

Darts icons Phil 'the Power' Taylor and ‘the Flying Scotsman’ Gary Anderson took part in a celebrity darts tournament organised by ED&F Man to raise funds for Action Against Cancer.

Former England footballers Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux were also among the players competing for the inaugural Richard Browne Trophy, named in honour of Capital Markets colleague Richard Browne, who died from cancer last year.

Over 200 ED&F Man staff and guests gathered at the Grange Hotel in central London for the event, arranged by Capital Markets’ Head of Legal and Compliance, Julian Courtney. “People were coming up to me all evening to tell me how much they were enjoying it,” he says.

“The celebrities were brilliant and the amount of money we raised is staggering. It was also amazing to see all the players in the ED&F Man colours,” he adds.

Sixteen teams were competing for the Richard Browne Trophy on the night, with ‘Only Balls and Horses’ as the victors. Gary Anderson separately won the ‘ED&F Man Trophy’, which was hotly contested by the four sporting celebrities.
